CEWE are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing the "Jessops Photo" service.

Business Transitions
In the event Jessops goes through a business transition, such as a merger, being acquired by another company, or selling a portion of its assets, users' personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred. Users will be notified via a prominent notice on our Web site for 30 days prior to a change of ownership or control of their personal information. If as a result of the business transition, the users' personally identifiable information will be used in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection they will be given choice consistent with our notification of changes section.

Our users are given the opportunity to 'opt-out' of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for information. For example, our order form has an 'opt-out' mechanism so users who buy a product from us, but don't want any marketing material, can keep their email address off of our lists.

User of the Jessops Photo may opt-out of email newsletters via the Jessops Photo website.

This Web site takes every precaution to protect our users' information.When users submit sensitive information via the Web site, their informationis protected both online and off-line.

When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information(such as credit card number and/or social security number), that informationis encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in theindustry - SSL. This uses 128 bit encryption, the highest currentlycommercially available.

While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on thebottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft InternetExplorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when usersare just 'surfing'.
